Nick Saban recalls Trevon Diggs moving from wide receiver, notes his success
Trevon Diggs is having a breakout season for the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL and has recorded an interception in 5 straight games to open the season as he leads the NFL with 6 interceptions.
On the SEC coaches media teleconference, Alabama coach Nick Saban recalled how Diggs made a position switch from wide receiver.
“First off, he was a really good receiver,” Saban said. “I think that a lot of times, guys have a vision of what they’d like to be. But, because of his skillset, he had great ball skills, really good hands, long, really athletic. … I thought there’d be more value for his future if he was corner. … It was his final decision to do it. … It certainly worked out really well for him and I’m really proud of the way he’s playing.”
“Trevon reminds me a lot of a guy I played against and with, and that’s Deion Sanders.”
